Further to recent reports that suggest we may be closing our Wednesbury showroom, we can clarify that no such decision has been made at this stage. Although a planning application has been submitted by the landowners and we are exploring alternatives in the long term, there are no immediate plans to close the West Midlands showroom. Carcraft would like to make the following statement:
“Carcraft is fully supportive of this application as it would free us from our existing lease obligations allowing us to consider higher profile showroom locations in the area. Carcraft has no intention of vacating this vital area and indeed is currently investigating opportunities for additional showrooms in the region, creating around 50 new jobs per showroom.
“The existing team of 51 in the Wednesbury location is vital to the success and future of Carcraft and will continue to be employed should we decide to move to new premises. A new showroom, combined with the skills and experience of our existing team, would allow us to offer an even better customer experience and we are excited by this potential opportunity.”
